Student[VectorCalculus][VectorFieldTutor] - plot or animate a vector field and flow line at a specified point

 Calling Sequence VectorFieldTutor() VectorFieldTutor(F, G)

Parameters

 F - 'Vector'(algebraic); vector field G - 'Vector'(realcons); starting point of flow line

Description

 • The VectorFieldTutor command launches a tutor interface that plots and animates the flow line through a vector field.
 • If F and G are not specified, VectorFieldTutor uses default values.
 • F and G must be defined in the same coordinate system.
